CLASSICAL | "Adventurous Italians" 

An early music all-star team is getting together for the next Publick Musick concert, this time as part of the Memorial Art Gallery's "Third Thursday" concert series. The star is probably the gallery's splendiferous Italian Baroque organ, which will be played by Eastman School of Music faculty member Edoardo Bellotti and student Naomi Gregory, but there is splendiferous baroque music by "Adventurous Italians" on hand as well: sonatas and concertos for strings by two of the great violin virtuosos of the time, Biagio Marini and Giovanni Battista Fontana, and a couple of other musically adventurous composers, Dario Castello and Giovanni Paolo Cima. Organists Bellotti and Gregory are joined by violinists Boel Gidholm, Mary Riccardi, and Molly McDonald; cellist Christopher Haritatos; and, on theorbo, Deborah Fox.

Publick Musick presents "Adventurous Italians" on Thursday, February 18, at Memorial Art Gallery 500 University Avenue. Free with Memorial Art Gallery admission.
